My obsession with xenoandrogens

First let me introduce myself. My name is Michael and I’m 42 years old full-time bodybuilding coach. I was mentor to several BB champions from continental Europe since 1990’s and you can imagine that I do know something on anabolic steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs.

As we all know, bodybuilding is a sport literally dependent on steroids. But in recent years the new anti-steroid laws made me and all my colleagues nothing short of a drug dealer. Yes, in my country – and in most other Western countries – there is not much of a difference today between the legal status of cocaine and, say, nandrolone or tren.

Well – I was looking for alternatives. Prohormones were a good solution for several years. Some guys didn’t respond to them but most did, although it sometimes took no less than 4-5 months to adjust the dosage and all. Then the EU criminal laws included prohormones and we had to begin from the scratch.

In March 2010 I met my relative who was at that time closely working with a team studying modified tocopherols/tocotrienols and their possible use in testosterone-replacement therapy. I became immediately interested and he managed to bring me some samples from the university lab.

So I guess I was among the first coaches in the World that had the privilege to experiment with xenoandrogens.This blog is about what I learned, and hopefully what I will learn in the future.

This is not a commercial blog and I don’t look for sponsors. I will never promote any commercial company so please do not contact me with advertisement – I will always be independent and critical.
